The impact of COVID-19 presents immediate challenges to the cultural and creative sector. The crisis underlines the power of culture and the importance of digital access. In the short term the Europeana Foundation  will support the sector by developing and curating online resources that can be of immediate use, such as webinars on topics that support capacity building. And in the months that follow we will focus our efforts on digital transformation to ensure that our work reflects the challenges the sector will face as a result of this crisis.
